Description

Sometimes simpler is better.

MasterView Cards take the guesswork out of creating the perfect composition, making perspective and proportion easier to figure, too. Whether in the studio or in plein air, you'll have the right viewfinder to suit your canvas size. Painting a 16"x20" canvas? Just choose the 4x5 viewfinder. You won't have to know that 16x20=4x5, though. We did the math for you! Each viewfinder card identifies the commonly sold canvas dimensions it works with in easy-to-read print. No moving parts. Nothing to slide. Nothing to break. Sturdy plastic wipes clean.

Additional Features:
Cards are a midtone grey to help you when determining the values in your subject.
Key ring enables you to remove cards you rarely use. Just put them aside until you need them.
One of the cards provides two view-holes for comparing values of adjacent objects and for isolating colors. (Remember that trick from art class?)

Yes. Simpler IS better!

A viewfinder is an essential tool when I am painting in the field or the studio. I have used many over the years and was thrilled come across the MasterView by artist Mary Marin.
The MasterView is very helpful for the artist working from life. It is a collection of viewfinders bundled together on a ring. Each viewfinder represents different canvas ratios. The sizes of the ratios are well marked for easy reading. Each viewfinder window has marks representing the midpoint, which makes it easy to proportion the shapes on your canvas or paper accordingly. The different ratios provide the artist with all the necessary options to create the work on any size surface they like. The MasterView is small, lightweight, and durable and tucks easily into any painter’s pack.
I like to use the little windows to trace my thumbnail outlines so the ratio of my thumbnail matches my canvas.
The MasterView has become my go-to viewfinder when working from life.
Sincerely,
Vianna Szabo PSA, IAPS EP
